Single Lady Sautéed Chicken and Apples

By Marensmorsels @marentweets

Boy is this recipe a keeper. I LOVED-LOVED-LOVED it.

Now, you don’t have to be a “single lady” to make this recipe. I simply decided that I’ll be posting a lot of single & double serving recipes now that I’m… independent… and I figured it would be a good way to separate them from the rest of my recipes.

There are a lot of people out there looking for smaller recipes.

Okay, before we get to that… I have some lunch and snack to share.

Lunch and Snack.


For lunch I made a Healthy Choice Café Steamer. I know… totally iffy. But it was surprisingly really really good. This is the Lemon Grass Chicken. I added some red pepper flakes but other than that it’s straight out of the microwave.

Then for snack I had some baby carrots dipped in some Best Foods: sandwich spread.


Seriously, buy the sandwich spread. So good! Really tasty for dipping veggies.


Sautéed Chicken and Apples


Makes 2 servings but at 255 calories, you can eat both. mhmm… just lookin’ out.


  • 1 tbsp evoo
  • 1 chicken breast (halved), or 3 frozen chicken tenders from Costco
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/2 fuji apple, sliced and corred
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  1. If you need to, defrost your chicken. Heat 1 tbsp evoo over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until golden brown, about 3 minutes a side.
  2. Add the apples, thyme, garlic, onion, apple juice, salt and pepper to the chicken. Simmer covered on medium heat for 6-8 minutes. Basically until chicken is fork tender.
  3. Remove chicken, apples, and onion from the pan and plate. Return the sauce to the burner and boil for 5 minutes, or until sauce begins to thicken.
  4. Whisk mustard into the sauce and top the chicken and apples with it.

Enjoy. I served mine with some basic steamed broccoli and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.


I prepped all my ingredients before cooking. Just makes things easier.


You can totally use dried thyme, add about 1/2 tsp. I used fresh because I was out of dried and it was cheaper to buy the fresh stuff.


I found this recipe on Real Simple… I just halved it.


Steam means it’s extra tasty, right?


I think yes!


Who am I kidding… the apples are the best part.
